Facebook for Businesses has always been great, but it's declining for personal use.

I managed social media as a marketing intern in 2016 and I loved using Facebook for longer posts and feature stories. Since there's no character limit like there is on twitter, Facebook is my go-to when we have a little more information to share than usual. I also love the event page feature on Facebook. We had a large annual event and every time we used a Facebook event page to promote it, there was a line outside the venue because we were over capacity. There's no other large social media platform that has a feature comparable to Facebook's event pages. I also love it that Facebook provides analytical reports for free. On other social media platforms like Twitter, we had to purchase an outside integration like Hootsuite to be able to get monthly reports.

I really enjoy Facebook because it is good for many aspects. I get to befriend and network with people all over the world and the USA. I can instantly communicate with someone who lives far and get answers in seconds. I enjoy that no matter what time of the day or night you are on Facebook someone else is on also. I like Instant Messenger too. That helps me to comminicate with my affiliates for my online company and helps me to keep tabs on my children's whereabouts. I like how we can store pictures and Facebook shows me what I posted in previous years. It has been instrumental in my expansion of my business and advertising on social media with just a mouse click. I enjoy the business groups and also the faith based groups I have found. I like the fact that you can have up to 5000 friends also.

Facebook has become the king of the social platform, even my mother uses it and she is nearly computer illiterate but you better believe she knows how to navigate her Facebook. You can find groups and support for just about anything from really important topics to people just trolling each other. The marketplace is a super powerful and from what I have seen FREE selling tool for anyone and seems less confusing than Craigslist. Games galore, most free, available from point and click to time management. You can build a business account separate from your personal account, but you can manage it with your personal account, and you have an entire hub dedicated to building your business and even your catalog and ads that you want to run, for a fee of course. Most features are free.

I mainly use Facebook for Business, helping brands and clients With 2.5b+ active users, Facebook is not only the largest social network among all competitors but also the one that covers every possible target market you could think of. We've created a Facebook business page for every client that we had, and we managed to deliver premium quality results and ROI on their ad. investment! Facebook allows you to publish ads with as low as 5$! That's one of the lowest barriers to entry you can ever get. Your ads will appear on Facebook and Instagram (make sure to enable that). You can target based on age, gender, interests, and location (down to a specific neighborhood!). Easy and quick setup of ads. and Facebook tends to approve ads. fast. Easy integration with e-commerce websites and the ability to track clicks from Facebook all the way up to purchases through Facebook pixel.
